Keeping the Class Ring in the Family »

Rod Culbertson, ’76, can remember seeing a University of South Carolina class ring from an early age. His father graduated from South Carolina in 1949 having gone through the veterans’ program and obtained a classic South Carolina ring.

Congratulations! Now that you’ve ordered your ring, you will need to register for the next Ring Ceremony. Registration will be made available on Eventbrite early each semester and will close 1-2 weeks before the ceremony. Jostens will bring all rings to be distributed at this ceremony.

Please note that registration is required for students to reserve seats for themselves and their families. Purchasing a ring alone does not automatically register you for the ceremony.

Yes! Each student or alumnus/a participating in Ring Ceremony may bring up to four guests.

All rings will be delivered to USC on the day of the Ring Ceremony to be presented to those who purchased them. After the ceremony, further information will be provided about any rings not picked up. Please note that rings are handled by Jostens and not held at the Alumni Center.

Visit uofscalumni.org/events to find the date of the next Ring Ceremony and register to attend.

The USC Alumni Association hosts Ring Week each fall and spring semester for students and alumni to try on rings, get sized and order their ring. Check our events page, uofscalumni.org/events, to find out when our next ring week will be held!

Undergraduate students who have completed at least 60 credit hours or graduate students who have completed at least half of their coursework are eligible to purchase the USC ring. Additionally, all USC Columbia alumni can purchase a ring.
