NMLS Transition

Transition to Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (NMLS) 

The Department utilizes the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (“NMLS”) to manage its licensees.  NMLS is owned and operated by the State Regulatory Registry LLC (SRR), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS).  Beginning September 1, 2020, installment lender licensees will be required to transition to NMLS.  The deadline for transitioning to NMLS is October 15, 2020.  Prior to the transition, the Department, in partnership with CSBS, will provide guidance to licensees on the transition process.  Please continue to visit the Department’s website for further developments on NMLS training dates and additional transition information.
