FAQ

Unfortunately, no. Class rings are specific to class year. If you would like your ring to reflect your class year, you must buy a ring from that collection. Virginia Tech class ring warranties include a provision that allows return of a class ring for a refund, less class dues, if the student will not graduate from the year which the class ring was ordered for purchase.

If you are a student, contact the ring company regarding the repair of your ring. There will not be a charge. If you are an alum, you must contact the Alumni Association for authorization and more information on how to contact your ring company.

You must contact the Alumni Association for authorization and more information on how to contact your ring manufacturer to get your ring resized.

The ring company is correct. The traditional class ring does not designate a degree, only the college. The signet style rings, however, do allow for customizing with degree names.

It is tradition at Virginia Tech that the class ring be officially presented to the junior class in the spring of their junior year at Ring Dance. Students do not need to attend Ring Dance to receive their rings, however, by tradition and contract, rings are not released to students until the week of Ring Dance. We suggest you present a card or ring box as the Christmas gift presentation.

In a time-honored tradition, the Virginia Tech Ring Collection is redesigned each year and is specifically for that class year. Ring companies, by contract, are not allowed to change the class year on any Virginia Tech ring, nor do repair or replacement of a class ring without approval from the Alumni Association.
