    I dont think so, but, if you want to be careful, you can say it like this: Oh-- the first comma I think is out of place... I dont think you need one there...

    Graduating summa cum laude this month, with an AAS in Electronics and Computer Technology

    (I think electronics and CT is an applied science... )

    Why not capitalize A in Associates and D in Degree?
    Might look better.

    Jus' a suggestion - I know you 'Bama folk don't know too much!

    Tracey, you don't mention the context--is it for a resume/CV? or for an announcement of some sort?

    Speaking as someone who reviews resumes and CV's daily, my preference would be as follows:

    Graduating summa cum laude with an Associate's Degree in Electronics and Computer Technology, December 2001.
