NMLS Multi-State Mortgage Licensing

Wondering how to add an NMLS state license? You will actually not get licensed through the NMLS, you will receive your license from your state agency. The NMLS functions as a registry of licensed MLO's and your state agency will report back to the NMLS when you are licensed. The process is simple, but you’ll want to make sure you’ve completed all the prerequisites before you jump into adding your license. This will ensure you don’t waste any time and can add your MLO license for your state successfully on the first attempt.


1. First, you will need to have passed the National Exam with Uniform State Content (USC).


2. Verify with the NMLS that your 20-hour course credits are valid in the state you are applying to for NMLS state licensing. To do so, please contact the NMLS at 1-855-665-7123.
