Michigan Mortgage Loan Officer License Requirements

As a result of the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (SAFE Act) of 2008, mortgage loan originators are required to complete a set list of requirements of both education and application in order to obtain a license to operate in their state. Below is a list of the requirements set forth by the SAFE Act and the state of Michigan for new loan officers applying for mortgage licenses:

Michigan New Mortgage License Education Requirements

New state-licensed Mortgage Loan Originators are required to complete 20 hours of SAFE pre-license education that includes:


  • 3 hours of Federal law and regulations
  • 3 hours of ethics, fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues
  • 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending
  • 10 hours of undefined instruction (electives)
  • 2 hours of Michigan state-specific instruction

New Mortgage License Education does not count towards annual CE credits. MLOs are also advised to not retake any 20 hour new license education course unless otherwise directed by a state regulator.

Michigan Continuing Education Requirements
