The course fields of education (CFE) packet is used to report changes through time to the fields of education for a given course. The first CFE packet for a course is created as part of the course packet. A provider may create as many additional CFE packets as necessary to report changes to the fields of education for a course through time.

Scope

Providers are required to create a CFE packet only when there is a change to E461 or E462 for a course.
