Indiana SOS Mortgage Licensing Information

NMLS Continuing Education Requirements for beginning your Indiana SOS NMLS continuing education are required by state law.

What happens if my NMLS license expires in Indiana SOS?

Before your license expires in Indiana, NMLS will send you a letter letting you know how long you have until it does so that you can take the necessary actions. To avoid having your MLO license expire, you must follow the Indiana SOS MLO Continuing Education requirements. 


If you were required to take Indiana SOS NMLS continuing education and did not, you can complete Late CE from Diehl Education to satisfy the Indiana SOS continuing education requirements. Our Continuing Education programs feature the latest standards in the mortgage industry to ensure you can not only meet the required criteria, but also offer the best service to your clientele. 


If you are returning to the mortgage industry after having an inactive license for a period of five or more years, you’ll need to satisfy any and all CE deficiencies for the last year(s) that you were licensed to reactivate your license. You may also have to take your NMLS exam again. 

What is the deadline to complete CE in Indiana SOS?

Your deadlines to complete Indiana NMLS Continuing Education are as follows:

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


After you’ve completed your course, it takes time for the NMLS database to update your information. Use these deadlines to remind yourself when to have your coursework completed for your best chances of renewal approval. The best thing you can do is make sure that you complete your continuing education by December 17 at the latest. There are no guarantees when your information is updated in the database, so the earlier, the better.

How can Diehl prepare MLO’s for Indiana SOS mortgage license renewal?

Diehl can help MLOs prepare for license renewal and additional MLO state licenses by providing the necessary tools and support, from Test Prep to Late CE, to ensure that you not only pass your tests but ensure that you’ve completed the necessary education on time for an easy renewal or reactivation process. 


Each year, we update our course materials to ensure that you’re learning the most recent information about the mortgage industry. Whether you’re preparing to take your MLO licensing exam or you’re completing your continuing education, you need study materials that are up-to-date so that you can not only pass your exams but succeed as a mortgage loan officer.
