Graduation Schedule

Graduation / Public Event Schedule

Marine Corps Recruit Depot

San Diego, California

Beginning 22 October 2021, all Marines graduating from Recruit Training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego will once again be authorized “boot leave,” and will be given the opportunity to take 10 days of leave following their graduation from Recruit Training.
Recruits will be given the opportunity to make all travel arrangements during the training cycle, and will have them completed prior to their graduation from Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. Travel plans may be coordinated to enable Marines to depart the Depot with their family following graduation and travel to their leave location together. Marines will travel with their follow-on orders which state the date that they are required to report to the School of Infantry to continue their Marine Corps training.
“Out of a desire to keep graduations open and accessible for all families, due to COVID-19 masks are now required in all indoor settings while aboard MCRD, San Diego.  During the conduct of the graduation ceremony, while seated in the bleachers, all guests must wear masks. We ask that all guests visiting for family day and graduation arrive at the gate with a mask, but we will be providing masks to those requiring them.
"We thank you for your continued cooperation and support.”
