How you find the oscillation period of a mass if not given the mass, or spring constant?

A mass is attached to a vertical spring, which then goes into oscillation. At the high point of the oscillation, the spring is in the original unstretched equilibrium position it had before the mass was attached; the low point is 3.7cm below this. Find the oscillation period, T.
