The X-Ring is an official trademark owned by the University and is considered a senior class ring. It has been part of the University’s history since the 1940s. The rights and processes to purchase an X-Ring, participate in the X-Ring Ceremony and nominate and select someone for an Honorary X-Ring are controlled by way of eligibility requirements which have developed over time. Eligibility to purchase an X-Ring is framed around academic credits earned within identified academic programs. Thresholds of academic progression within programs are established and set out in the policy. The purchasing of an X-Ring is limited to approved vendors and the delivery of the ring normally occurs at the annual X-Ring Ceremony or anytime thereafter.
