8. Receiving your Ring

Ring orders placed during Official Ring Week:
Students who purchase their rings during the official fall or spring Ring Week will receive an invitation to the Official Ring Ceremony held at the close of each semester in Waco Hall. Balfour mails the formal invitation to students on the ceremony list using the address on the order form. Students also receive emails from the university with ceremony details.

The university president presents each student their ring at the Official Ring Ceremony. The ceremonies begin at 5:30 p.m. and are usually completed by 7 p.m. A photo is taken of each recipient with the president as they receive their ring. These photos are available for order in the lobby after the event. There is also a brief reception in the lobby afterward.

Students who do not attend the ceremony will receive an email the following morning with instructions on when and where to pick up their rings. Rings that are not picked up by the last day specified in the email will be shipped back to Balfour and then be shipped to the student's permanent address.

Questions about Official Ring Weeks or Ring Ceremonies may be directed to Jan Dodd, Jan_Dodd@baylor.edu

Ring orders placed at all other times:

Ring orders placed any time other than during Official Ring Weeks will be shipped to the ring recipient. Delivery usually takes 6-8 weeks. Inquiries should be directed to Balfour customer service.
