Auburn Ring FAQ

Q. How many hours are required to be eligible to get a ring?

A. No, transfer hours do not count, but all Auburn graduates are eligible to order a ring during the semester in which they are graduating!

Q. Can I get a custom ring?

A. We only carry the traditional rings that are shown on the Balfour website. The reasoning behind this is so that the entire Auburn Family can be unified through the one Official Auburn University ring. For this reason, we are no longer able to customize rings other than the engraving.
