Notice to Student Loan Servicers

On May 12, 2016, the Commissioner elected to require use of the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (“NMLS” or “System”) for the licensing of student loan servicers.

The Order Requiring Student Loan Servicers to be Licensed on NMLS and Interim Procedures (pdf file) addresses changes in procedures that will occur by operation of law and otherwise by order to enable participation in the System.  It also sets forth detailed Interim Procedures regarding use of NMLS by applicants and a position on the deadline for licensure and enforcement. 

For you reference, use this link to a June 17, 2015, Order Establishing Requirements and Interim Procedures for System-Based Licensure for Certain Financial Services Industries (pdf file).
