 Nationwide Multistate Licensing System 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 sales finance company license you should begin by first reviewing Connecticut’s Jurisdiction-Specific Requirements along with Connecticut's sales finance company licensing statutes, which provides the current licensing procedures and requirements applicable to sales finance companies.
If your company already has a completed record in the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry, 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 jurisdiction-specific requirements to the Department.
Go to the Getting Started page of the NMLS website and follow the steps outlined:
