Graduation Dates USMC Marine Corps Boot Camp

San Diego Moto Run

Marines of Delta Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, run in formation during their motivation run at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, August 6, 2015. After these Marines complete the run, they will spend the rest of their afternoon with their families, friends and loved ones during on-base liberty. Today, all males recruited from west of the Mississippi River are trained at MCRD San Diego. The depot is responsible for training more than 16,000 recruits annually.

Graduation Dates

Boot camp graduations are usually on Fridays. Sometimes, due to holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the Marine Corps Birthday, graduation will be on a Wednesday. If that is the case the USMC schedule will indicate the alternate family day and graduation dates. Parris Island and San Diego DO NOT necessarily follow the same schedules when there are changes.

Graduation and ship dates are kept up-to-date on this page, barring any delays by the Marine Corps. We encourage you to join your recruit's graduation group on Facebook. It will be a great place for you to connect with other families who have recruits going through boot camp with your son or daughter. Click on the link beside your recruit's graduation date to request to join that group.

Ship/graduation dates will be confirmed and added to this page as soon as the Marine Corps publishes those dates on their website.
