About this course:
Students enrolled in prelicensing courses must actively participate
in the course throughout the entire session. This is important to
understand as it requires you to start on time and also means that
you will not be able to finish before the scheduled end date. Students
who are unable to start their course within three (3) days after
course start will be required to move to another session. For example,
if your course starts on August 1st, you must be logged in by August
3rd in order to remain in the current course session. Course completions
will be submitted to the NMLS within seven days after the course end date.

13 Things to Know About Our Instructor-led Online Courses
Our NMLS-approved instructor-led courses provide all of
the tools to help you successfully complete your online
MLO pre-licensing education - and prepare you for your exam.
Each course has a specific start and end date and required
activities, including exams that you must complete in order
to receive course credit. Please note this course runs through
a server on Eastern Standard Time so availability of exams
along with course expiration (11:59 p.m. EST) are based on this.
Every module has a required reading assignment that may be
read online, downloaded and saved, or printed. You should
save/print the reading assignments for ongoing reference
after the class ends.
The Course Resources page in the Introduction includes
helpful reference documents that can be downloaded, such
as instructions for taking tests and posting on discussion
threads, answers to reading assignment quizzes, glossary, etc.
Every module—and the Introduction—has a required exam that
may be accessed from any page in the module by clicking the
Exam button at the top of the screen.
Although you may be able to access a module and its
reading assignment, you can’t start a module exam until
it is unlocked.
New module exams are unlocked daily throughout the time
period of the class session—for example, the Module 3
exam is unlocked on Day 2; the final exam unlocked on
Day 11—but you are not required to complete one module
each day. You can work at your own pace, but can’t work ahead.
You must achieve a score of 75% on the required exam
before the next module is accessible. You may retake
the exams as often as you like during the class session.
The course has several required “homework” assignments.
Details for these, and other activities, are available
from the Assignments page in each module. You must complete
the assignments to get credit for the course.
You can click on the Course Calendar to see the specific
dates when module exams are unlocked or assignments are due.
You have easy access to your instructor and other students
through our discussion forums and other activities.
You must have a unique NMLS ID available before the
class ends. It is required to get credit for completing
the course. To obtain a NMLS ID, contact the NMLS directly.
You will not have access the course after the class end
date. Be sure to save/print the reading assignments for
ongoing reference after the class ends.
IMPORTANT: This 20-hr course is applicable for those states
