YOUR 2024 UH CLASS RING AWAITS!

Join the Tradition!

The UH Class Ring is a milestone of the UH student experience. It reminds us of our commitment to the UH community, participation in campus traditions and personal success through academic achievements. The interlocking UH logo adorns the top of the official class ring. The right shank presents the University seal – a variation of Sam Houston’s coat of arms – that features flanked martlets, two greyhounds and a winged hourglass with the motto “In Time” above it. The wearer’s graduation year is also featured on this side. The left shank bears the wearer’s degree, a façade of the Ezekiel Cullen Building and the University’s founding date, 1927.

New Rings

The last day to order your class ring is Friday, March 8th, 2024, to be included in the Guarding of the Rings and Ring Ceremony.
