How to correct student loan baddies?

Hi all,


I am helipng a friend rebuild her credit right now and as we go to try and remove some of her "lates" they are with student loan companies like ACS. 


Is the process any different with loan companies than it is with credit card companies? 


I am having her start with this:

1. Pay her two 30-day late accounts to current

2. Set them up on auto-withdraw from her checking so she won't forget again (she has the money, she just forgot)

3. Send GW letters requesting removal of delinquencies


Is there anything I am forgetting?


Thanks to all!
