Student cards? What happens when I'm no longer a student?

I am a student right now.


I have a Wells Fargo Student Platinum Visa no AF, prime card.


And I just got approved for a U.S. Bank College Visa, no AF, Prime Card.


My question is, what happens with these cards when Im no longer in school (sometime this summer)


I know they dont just go away and get closed lol


Do I need to call and get them converted? Will it be another credit pull to see if i qualify for the new card? Thats kinda stupid?


I dont want to be carrying around student cards while im not in school lol.

You can request to graduate to a regular CC with a higher CL and a better interest rate.. thats if you've had good payment history and payment patterns with them. There should be no hard pull.
