Palmer is committed to be an enduring presence in the lives of our graduates—continuing to form whole persons to share the whole gospel with the whole world. While it is a theological educational institution, it is first and foremost a ministry. Thus it is important for the seminary to serve its graduates and friends in whatever ways possible. 


Alumni Care Initiative

The Alumni Care Initiative is an innovative communal approach to discovery and discernment. How can Palmer offer support and nourishment to our graduates? What are the deep needs of alumni?  The Initiative will spend the coming months visiting alumni, offering care, and listening. Learn more about the Initiative.

Audit Classes

One way we serve our graduates is by offering them the opportunity to audit two tuition free courses a year. (There is a $60 audit fee per three-credit course.) This gives alumni a vehicle for continuing education, while current students welcome the chance to hear from people who have experience in ministry. For details or to express interest in this auditing program, contact the Registrar's office:

Get Continuing Education Units

Elective courses in Palmer’s on-ground Master of Divinity and Master of Theological Studies programs at St. Davids are available to alumni and friends for auditing to earn Continuing Education Units (CEU). A certificate of completion for 3 CEUs will be issued for a 3-credit course. Learn more about continuing education units.  

Order Transcripts

Also on this site, Palmer alumni can request a transcript, access the Palmer Seminary library, and access scholarly resources compiled by longtime professor Tom McDaniel, as well as church denominational resources you might find useful.
