A silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in diameter consisting of a compass rose, bearing on the center a gold brown titan's helmet. Attached to the compass, from the northwestern point to the northeastern point, an orange tripartite scroll inscribed "FOLLOW THE CREED" in silver letters.
Orange, silver, and white are the school colors. The Titan is the school's mascot and reflects the strength and spirit of the cadets. The compass is taken from the school's coat of arms and symbolizes the partnership of academic instruction provided by the school and the pursuit of knowledge by the cadets. The scroll drapes over the compass in the shape of the letter "U", representing University High School.
The shoulder loop insignia was authorized 22 March 2013.
