Base Access at MCRD Parris Island
Travel Planning
For official information from MCRD PI, please see:
Visiting MCRD Parris Island

All military installations, including the Depot, have rules that must be followed for security and to maintain an organized community and lifestyle while on the base. It's all part of the new military lifestyle your son or daughter is learning. While at the Depot (MCRD Parris Island) you are a guest on a military installation as well as a guest of your future Marine. Your actions on the depot are a direct reflection on your son or daughter. Please be courteous and respectful.

All recruits are issued one graduation packet with the battalion commanderís graduation invitation letter sometime around week 9 of their 12-week training cycle. The recruits decide who will receive their graduation packet. Vehicle/parking passes are no longer included in the graduation packet as they are not required for typical daily visitors of Parris Island, such as those coming for graduation and other related events.
