Sociology professor Steve McInter conducts a survey at Collins College about the lifestyles and sexual urges of the younger generation.[4] One of his students, Sally Blake, excels with the survey and may be having an affair with the professor. Reporter Betty Ducayne receives an anonymous tip that Steve is corrupting the youth and she discovers the dark past that he had fled.



The film was an unofficial follow-up to High School Confidential from two years prior, although made for a different studio. Director Joe Dante, who spoofed said follow-up on the 1979 Ramones vehicle Rock 'n' Roll High School,[5] asked Allen about making College Confidential at one point and the latter said that it was going to be progressive. It has never been available on any home media.[6][7]
