What happens if my NMLS license expires in Connecticut?

If you didn’t complete the renewal process the previous year and your NMLS license expires, it’s no longer valid. You’ll have to take a seven-hour Late CE course online plus a one-hour Late CT CE for it to be reactivated. Remember, Connecticut CE courses are an annual requirement and are necessary to maintain your license. 

If your license becomes inactive for five years, you’ll have to retake CE courses and the NMLS license exam again. Final exams in the CE course must be passed with at least a 70% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. To help you get back to originating as soon as possible, you can use Prep2Pass®. This NMLS MLO Test Prep tool contains sample Connecticut MLO practice tests that mimic the style of the actual exam so that you can be prepared to pass the first time.

What is the deadline to complete CE in Connecticut?

Connecticut licensed MLOs must complete their CE and renew their license annually by December 31. You must also complete Connecticut Continuing Education before applying to renew your license. Keep in mind, CE course completion records can take about a week to be reported to the NMLS by your provider, so it’s a good idea to complete this requirement early on. Otherwise, you risk not renewing by the deadline. To ensure MLOs meet the deadline and renew on time, the NMLS provides three submission dates: 

  • SMART Renewal Deadline: December 10
  • At-Risk Deadline: December 17
  • Guaranteed Missed Deadline: December 31

While the final day to submit your renewal is December 31, aim to have it filed by the SMART Renewal deadline. At Diehl Education, we use an efficient system to help you complete your CE requirements quickly. Plus, we can deliver your records to the NMLS in as little as two business days.
