The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition hosts professional development events including conferences, institutes, and workshops each year to address current trends, issues, and high impact practices affecting college students in transition. The Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience focuses on first-year student programs and initiatives. The Center also offers two other annual meetings. The National Conference on Students in Transition addresses issues beyond the first year and the International Conference on The First-Year Experience provides an international forum for discussion of the first college year. National institutes are held annually on specific topics related to student learning, development, and success.

The National Resource Center also offers online courses on topics of interest in the first-year experience and students in transition field. The courses are designed to come as close as possible to providing students with the same course content and opportunities for interaction with classmates and with the instructor as traditional (i.e. classroom-based) courses as well as take advantage of pedagogy and teaching techniques that are not possible or uncommon in a traditional format. The courses utilize tools such as email, threaded discussions/forums, listservs, and blogs.
