Mortgage Loan Originator License – How to Renew

How To Renew

Each individual mortgage loan originator (MLO) must renew their license in NMLS between November 1st and December 31st of each year. Individuals can complete the renewal process themselves, or their company can complete the renewal process on their behalf. Individuals are responsible for submitting and paying for their renewal request when they have un-sponsored licenses or when their company has instructed them to do so. Individuals should check with their sponsoring company to determine who will facilitate the renewal process.
