Non-FINRA or Issuer Securities Agents: How To Register

  1. Examination: The individual initially must be employed by a broker-dealer for sponsorship of him/her to take the appropriate exams required by the Federal Regulatory Agency. Michigan requires the Series 63 exam. Waivers may be granted for the following reasons:
    • If the Series 66 exam was passed in lieu of the Series 63.
    • If an agent was approved in the securities business prior to the Series 63 requirement going into effect, and has not been unregistered for a period of two or more years.
    • If an agent passed the Series 63, and has been registered within the preceding two years in a state requiring the Series 63.
    • If a non-FINRA agent was registered with a self-regulatory organization within the previous two years.
However, in order to grant the waiver our office must be notified of the agent's Series 63 deficiency by e-mail or fax at (517) 241-6356, ATTN: Securities.
