Master of Divinity Exit Interview pre-2016

This last required milestone is due the last day of your last year at PSR, and you are encouraged to fill it out in consultation with your advisor. Note that your MDiv diploma will be held if this last milestone is not submitted. Upon completion, a copy of your Interview will be sent to you and your advisor at the emails you provide on this form. Please ensure you use the official school email addresses for both yourself and your advisor.

A copy of your completed form will also be sent to the Assistant Dean for Academic Programs and will be archived in the Office of Academic Affairs for a limited number of years separately from your official student file for the purpose of tracking milestone completion, institutional research, and providing data for accrediting bodies. Faculty advisors are expected to read your Interview. Responses from all students in aggregate form may be shared with faculty for the purposes of student advisement. If data is presented in aggregate form to other non-PSR third parties such as accreditors, all personal identifiers (such as your name and email) will be removed.

Please submit any further questions about this milestone to the Assistant Dean for Academic Programs at
