Preparing for Graduation and Beyond

April 3rd, 2014 by webdev

It’s that time of year again, time to start enjoying this beautiful weather and hanging out at the beach with friends.  It’s also time to buckle down and study for your finals while finishing out the school year strong.  For those of you who are graduating in May or over the summer, life can be hectic.  The workload involved in preparation for graduation along with everything else going on in life can be somewhat overwhelming.  I am one of those students graduating in the next few months, and I’ve decided to get organized by making a graduation checklist.  I’m sharing my checklist in hopes of easing some of your stress over the last few months as a college student.  Therefore, allowing you to slow down and appreciate your time and journey with Cape Fear Community College.



File intent to graduate.

Meet with an advisor to register for your final classes. They can look over your program evaluation in order to make sure you’re taking the right classes and on the right path towards graduation.

Keep track of the number of classes left, exam dates and project finals.  The final stretch is very important.  Don’t slack now.  Do well!

Attend the CFCC job fair April 24th at the N. Campus from 11-2. Dress well.

Search and apply for career worthy jobs.

Send invites to family members and close friends who want to attend your graduation.

Order your cap and gown.  Also, order any regalia that you might want from your school club or honor society.

Go shopping for graduation worthy clothes.


Enjoy the big day.  Take many pictures.  Give thanks to those who have helped you along the way.

Celebrate!  You have earned it.
