Do you know your state license deadline for the 2021 renewal period?

The SAFE Act requires that all licensed mortgage loan originators complete annual continuing education courses to renew their NMLS mortgage license. In most states, renewal season begins on November 1st. But there are exceptions to that rule with some states, like Georgia, where the renewal deadline is on October 31st. The NMLS, the mortgage industry's governing body, allows licensed practitioners to complete their CE any time up until the renewal date, meaning MLOs can start working on their CE courses as early as possible. For that reason, they have created a list of dates that serve as reminders for the upcoming renewal season.
