BI Interview and Interim Clearance

Hi, just a question regarding the order of things. I am up for a Secret Clearance, and filled out my SF86/eQIP about one month ago. I finally got my BI assigned, and have my interview coming up with them. In the meantime, I haven’t heard anything about an interim clearance. Is it normal to get an interim after the interview? Would I know if the interim had been denied? Just not sure what the process is like there.

Thank you!
