How do I contact Hawaii Mortgage Licensing?

If you have questions about the Hawaii mortgage license renewal process, including CE requirements, you can visit the NMLS site or call them directly at 855-665-112. You can also contact the Hawaii Division of Financial Institutions for state-specific information using the information below: 

What happens if my NMLS license expires in Hawaii?

If your NMLS license expires, that means you didn’t complete the necessary requirements on time. As a result, you may have to take Late CE courses online to finish the renewal process. 

Keep in mind that if your license is inactive for five years, you’ll have to take the mandatory NMLS exam again with a score of 75% or higher. Take advantage of Diehl Education’s NMLS Test Prep tools, such as Hawaii MLO practice tests and flashcards, to ensure you can pass the first time around. You can avoid this altogether by marking down any important renewal deadlines on your calendar. 

What is the deadline to complete CE in Hawaii?

The deadline to complete Hawaii NMLS Continuing Education courses is December 31. This is a necessary step in the MLO renewal process, as you won’t be able to renew your license until the NMLS has a record of CE course completion. It can take up to seven days for a provider to submit your course completion to the NMLS, so it’s best not to leave this to the last minute. Take a look at the deadlines provided by the NMLS below to guarantee your renewal: 

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

If you’re pressed for time, Diehl Education can help you complete your Hawaii MLO Continuing Education coursework quickly and efficiently, and you can have your result delivered to the NMLS in 48 hours.
