Revised September 25, 2018

Ellie Mae plans on making the new URLA functionality generally available in Q3 of 2019 in order to provide clients with time to become familiar with the changes, train users, update policies and procedures in addition to any existing configuration or customization that may be impacted. This will be policy driven and use of the new URLA will be in the control of the lender.
