If your studies are about to finish - you only have a possiblity to legalize your further stay based on work.
Please note that as a graduate of a Polish university you have a right to work in Poland without a permit.
So, the key document you need is a work agreement - based on this you can apply for a new residence permit.
I suggest you apply for the new card now, not waiting for expiry of your current card. This way you 'save' some time of waiting (when indeed you would not have the legal right to work - while your application is pending).
I also propose that you contact a lawyer to help you with the application - check our CONTACTS section for details of organizations providing free legal aid to migrants. I regret at the moment we do not have a lawyer at our organization.

Migration Helpline (Infolinia Migracyjna) is now run thanks to voluntary work of PFM staff. Before, it was maintained (2012-2014) thanks to co-financing of the project Information Center for Foreigners 2, run by PFM in partnership with the Association for Legal Intervention and the Mazovian Governor. It is co-financed by the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and by the state budget.
In the years 2009-2011 the project was run as part of Information Center for Foreigners run by the same partnership, also co-financed by the European Fund for Integration of Third Country Nationals and by the state budget.
