As a senior in college, the countdown towards graduation is in full swing. Every time I walk to class now, I realize how much I cherish my time here in college. That being said, there is plenty I need to do to get ready for graduation and make sure I end the year successfully.

Here are the top 3 things to make sure your graduation goes off without a hitch:

1) Apply for Graduation.

Although this may seem obvious, for some students this is an easily overlooked task. Confirm with your advisor that you have taken the required course load, and make sure the school registrar has you registered for graduation. Filling out your graduation paperwork is an important task on the way to graduating from school.

2) Send out Graduation Announcements.

Don’t hesitate to share the world the news that you’re graduating! Although some people might find them a little old-fashioned, I’m sure your mother doesn’t! Sending out graduation announcements can be fun and it’s always nice to let people know that you’ve successfully navigated the rough waters of college.

3) Order your cap and gown.

Trust me; you don’t want to be the guy or girl with no cap and gown the day before graduation. At UVa, we have cap and gown week, where the school makes a big deal out of all the graduating 4th years. You can probably order these at the school bookstore when you’re laughing at all the miserable people still buying expensive textbooks!

So there you have it, a quick checklist to make sure you are on track to graduate. If anything else, make sure to keep attending class and study as hard as you did when you were a freshman. You can’t graduate if you fail out of school!
