The ring savings program is meant to help you start saving now for your ring so the expense does not occur all at once; however, it may not pay for your ring in full.

Once you are ready to order your ring visit the SFA Alumni office on campus or www.thesfaring.com.

The Alumni Association office is located just north of the Baker Pattillo Student Center, and they will have record of your ring savings account and will be able to size you for your ring.
