The first step to obtaining your Connecticut mortgage license is applying for an NMLS account and ID number. To do so, go to the NMLS website.

     

Connecticut requires new state-licensed MLOs to complete 21 hours of NMLS-approved education. This includes 3 hours of Federal law, 3 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, 12 hours of electives, and 1 hour of Connecticut specific law.

     

With your education complete, you need to schedule an appointment for the National Test Component exam. Find out more on how to take your NMLS test here. Also check out the NMLS MLO testing handbook.

After receiving a passing score on your NMLS mortgage exam, you need to apply for your Connecticut mortgage loan originator license. You can find more information on this step here.

 

     

You won’t be fully licensed in Connecticut until you have an employer sponsorship, which lets the government know that an employer is supervising your individual license. Learn how to associate your NMLS account with your employer here.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Connecticut Mortgage Licensing Requirements

Connecticut requires 20 hours of NMLS approved mortgage education, and an additional 1 hour Connecticut state law and rules course. Mortgage Educators & Compliance offers the both of these courses in a low price bundle of $259 that includes both education required courses and a comprehensive test prep to help you score well on the NMLS National Test with UST component.

 

Pre-license mortgage education requirements can be fulfilled in one of three ways; with an online instructor-led course, via a live webinar, or in a live classroom. Mortgage Educators provides these courses in all three available formats. We find that the majority of new loan officers elect for the flexible Online Instructor-Led (OIL) format, which consists of pre-recorded video lectures supported by slideshow presentations, and quizzes that ensure content retention. As you complete your mortgage education, we will report all completed hours of education to the NMLS.

 

Connecticut Mortgage Broker License VS. Connecticut Loan Officer License

Mortgage broker licenses are commonly confused with the more common loan officer license. While the terms mortgage broker, loan officer, and mortgage loan originator are similar, they aren’t synonymous. So what’s the difference?

 

Generally speaking, a mortgage broker is a company that employs mortgage loan officers. The loan officers are employed by the broker to originate loans for home-buyers when they are looking for a loan for their mortgage.

 

PE Expiration Policy in Connecticut

PE Expiration is a policy that was created by the NMLS Policy Committee that addresses situations in which an individual is required to retake 20 hours of pre-licensure education if they fail to acquire a valid mortgage license within three years from the last date of licensure as a mortgage loan originator. Connecticut has enacted their PE expiration policy which means it is enforced.
