The mortgage loan originator program is overseen by a five member Board. Three members are licensed mortgage loan originators and two members represent the public. Each member serves a four year term. The Board makes final decisions that concern rulemaking, licensing matters, complaints and any disciplinary action that might be taken against a mortgage loan originator.
Mortgage loan originator (MLO) licenses are issued on an annual calendar cycle, expiring on December 31st each year. To receive a license an individual applicant will need to submit proof of completion of education and examination requirements, submit to a background check, obtain errors and omissions insurance, fill out an application, pay a fee and register with the NMLS. Licensees will need to renew their license on an annual basis or reinstate their license if they miss the deadline. In addition, mortgage companies will need to register with the NMLS .

Mortgage loan originator applicants are required to complete 20 hours of pre-licensing education and complete the two-part exam before receiving a state license. In addition, on an annual basis, all active and inactive licensees must complete eight hours of continuing education on a national level and a two hour update course that is Colorado specific.

When the Division receives a complaint regarding a mortgage loan originator or mortgage loan originator activity, if warranted, an investigation will be opened and assigned to an Investigator to review the complaint. If the Board determines there was a violation and issues disciplinary action, Division staff will attempt to resolve the matter through the internal Expedited Settlement Program (ESP).
