Nationwide Multistate Licensing and Registry
On July 1, 2015, the Department of Banking began participation for non-mortgage licensees on NMLS. 

If you wish to apply for a debt adjuster license you should begin by first reviewing Connecticut’s Jurisdiction-Specific Requirements along with Connecticut's debt adjuster licensing statutes, which provides the current licensing procedures and requirements applicable to debt adjusters.
All new applications must be submitted to the Department via the Nationwide Multistate Licensing and Registry.
If your company already has a completed record in the National Mortgage Licensing System, then applying for a license in Connecticut merely involves filing your company's record (Form MU1), control person records (Form MU2), and relevant branch records (Form MU3) with Connecticut through the NMLS and mailing in the required jurisdiction-specific requirements to the Department.
Go to the Getting Started page of the NMLS website and follow the steps outlined.
