I transferred colleges after my first semester in 2006. I finished my degree at another location and was always enrolled through 2010. I was checking my CR and EdFinancial is showing 30, 60, 90 and 180 days late starting in mid 2009. Can I contact them and tell them these are not accurate, as my loans were deferred while I was enrolled in school?
Thank you !

You can and should contact them and ask them to grant you a deferrment for that time and remove the lates. Be prepared to send them proof that you were enrolled full-time on the dates in question.
That said, it is your responsibility to make sure your lenders are aware of your "in-school" status and that your loans are properly deferred, especially when you change schools or take a break and return. Normally, lenders are notified automatically, but there's always the chance for a mistake. Hopefully, they'll be willing to work with you on this.
