STUDENTS NEED TO KNOW

Once students have properly registered for classes being held at Robins AFB, it's their responsibility to contact our office via phone at 478-327-7376 to request information on how to obtain a personal pass. Personal pass information and forms are usually e-mailed to students at least 2 weeks before classes begin. If a student's name is not on the class roster at that time, due to a late registration, they will not receive the pass information or form, so it's imperative that students who register late contact our office. Once pass paperwork is received by the student it needs to be completed and physically (no faxing or emailing) taken to the Visitor's Center at the main gate (Watson Blvd Gate), at least 3 days before class begins or earlier if possible. While at the Visitor's Center students will also be required to submit to a background check. If background checks can't be performed on that day due to computer system issues, it is possible that a temporary pass will be issued. Students will need to check the valid dates on this pass to ensure that they return back to the Visitor's Center on another day to complete the background check completed and obtain properly updated pass. Currently, personal passes are being issued in the form of a card and will be valid for the complete semester the student is registered for, but this could change at any time. Processing time for a pass depends totally on the workload of the Visitor's Center. If time constraints are an issue, please contact the Visitor's Center to get an estimated wait time prior to arrival.

Once your pass has been issued to you, our office asks that it is kept it in a safe and secure location. Please remember that when on the base, the pass must be kept on your person at all times and not in your vehicle.

CAR POOLING: If a student is not driving a vehicle onto the base but carpools with another student no vehicle documentation is required; however, they must still take the Request for Robins Base Pass Form and some form of identification (i.e., driver's license, some form of state ID, passport or student visa) with them to the Visitor's Center so that a background check can be conducted and the personal pass issued.

MILITARY OR DOD IDENTIFICATION CARD HOLDERS: If a student is already in possession of a valid military or DOD identification card which allows them access to the base, they will not need the Request for Personal Pass from.
