The Annual License Renewal Period for 2017 is now closed.  Licensees that failed to renew and are now in a terminated - expired status will need to reapply through the NMLS.

Please note that the NMLSR federal registration process must be utilized if you are an employee of a bank, bank subsidiary or a credit union.  As required under federal law, residential mortgage loan originators employed by banks, savings associations, credit unions, or Farm Credit System institutions must register with the registry, obtain a unique identifier from the registry, and maintain their registrations.  Further information regarding the registry and the registration process is available at the registry's website:
