Application Forms - Mortgage Loan Originators
In response to the rapidly evolving national health emergency, the SCC is directing all business with the Commission to be handled through electronic filing systems, email, or by telephone. The Bureau of Financial Institutions is therefore requesting that all application forms and any related supporting documentation be submitted via email to BFIApplications@scc.virginia.gov. PLEASE DO NOT MAIL IN CHECKS OR CASH FOR THE ASSOCIATION APPLICATION FEES. Upon receipt of your application, we will confirm receipt and generate an invoice with instructions on how to remit the fees online.
Unless exempt from licensing, no individual shall engage in the business of a mortgage
loan originator (MLO), unless such individual has first obtained a license under
Chapter 17 of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia. For licensing
exemptions and information about licensing, including FAQs, we strongly recommend
that you review the information available from our site.
Chapter 17 requires the filing of an application for a mortgage loan originator
(MLO) license through the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS). The MLO application
form is referred to as Form MU4. The MU4 application and the Virginia MLO application
checklist with the required forms can be accessed on the NMLS website through the
link below. The Virginia requirements must be submitted to the Bureau at the time
the MU4 is electronically filed.
Links to related laws and regulations appear below. Code and Regulation Sections
can be viewed and downloaded individually or a report of multiple Sections can be
created and downloaded. To download multiple Sections click on "create report" at
the beginning of the table of contents for the specific Chapter and enter the beginning
and ending Section of the sequence you wish to download. It is your responsibility
to read and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

below are external and will take you off
the SCC website.
Note: All applications are investigated by the Bureau
of Financial Institutions. Certain application decisions are made by the Commissioner
of Financial Institutions under delegated authority from the State Corporation Commission.
In the event you wish to appeal either a determination made by the Bureau of Financial
Institutions in the course of its investigation of your application or the Commissioner
of Financial Institutions’ decision on your application, you may request a formal
review by the State Corporation Commission in accordance with its
Rules of Practice and Procedure
