Default Student to Graduate status in ECFMG/USMLE Application?

Hi Guys,
I am a Medical Student at the Final Year of my Medical School. I am applying for USMLE Step 1 this December 2016. Now I am choosing to give exam in June-July-August of 2017, by the time of which I would be graduated.
Now I have read in Item 17. Medical Education Status:

'Both ECFMG and USMLE policy require that, to be eligible for a USMLE exam, you must be either a medical school student officially enrolled or a medical school graduate both at the time you apply AND on your test day. '

So by the time of Test date I would be a graduate. So my question is that
1) Do I have to reapply again for step 1 with the change in my status?
2) Will that be counted as an Irregular behavior?
3) Is there a way I can notify my status change to ECFMG once I become a Graduate?
4) Will I lose my money for the application I made as a student?

I will be grateful for your help. I will be waiting for your reply.
Thank You.
