Depends, what subjects does she have left to do? What area is she least skilled in? Are community college summer courses an option?

Sounds as if she has plenty of credits. If she were mine, I would bring her home, graduate her ASAP, and let her move on.

Electives are all she has left?

What does she do?

Does she play guitar or a sport? Those are electives.

Does she baby sit or work? Those are electives.

Electives shouldn't be this difficult thing. For the most part, they should come from what she is already doing.

Sit down with her and do some brainstorming.

Yep. There are all sorts of things that can be applied to electives. Have you looked into portfolio review? A portfolio of work and/or a written narrative proving you know a certain subject can be put together in just a few days, it's a good way to get college credit for real-life experience or things you already know. I used portfolio review for several of my computer electives and a humanities elective.
