Pre-Licensure Education Requirements
New state-licensed MLOs are required to complete 20 hours of NMLS-approved education. This education must include 3 hours of Federal law, 3 hours of ethics (which shall include fraud, consumer protection, and fair lending issues), 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, plus 8 hours of undefined education (referred to as electives) + 4 hours of MS law.
Number of hours is 3/3/2/8/+ 4hrs of MS law = 20
Mississippi has a requirement for 4 hours of instruction on state-specific law (MS S.A.F.E Mortgage Act) which may be satisfied by either taking a MS comprehensive course or a state-specific elective course.
