Fast-talking lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) enrolls at Greendale Community College after the State Bar discovered his illegitimate degree and threatened to suspend his license. When Jeff pretends to be a Spanish tutor to get close to his classmate Britta (Gillian Jacobs), he winds up with an entire study group of students looking for his help. Pierce (Chevy Chase), Abed (Danny Pudi), Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), Annie (Alison Brie), Troy (Donald Glover), and Britta comprise the band of misfits that Jeff never asked for, but may end up needing when he realizes his connection to Greendale professor Ian Duncan (John Oliver) won't pay off like he hoped.
Jeff's (Joel McHale) efforts to win over Britta (Gillian Jacobs) backfire, and he finds himself paired up with Pierce (Chevy Chase) for their Spanish class project. The two give teacher Señor Chang (Ken Jeong) the presentation of a lifetime. Meanwhile, inspired by Britta's awareness of social issues, Annie (Alison Brie) and Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) stage a protest on Greendale's campus.
Jeff (Joel McHale) thinks he has found an easy "A" with a laid back, no-books-allowed class. He suffers a rude awakening, however, when the free-spirited professor (John Michael Higgins) sees through his lazy attitude. Meanwhile, Britta (Gillian Jacobs) meddles in Abed's (Danny Pudi) education and finds herself at odds with his father (Iqbal Theba).
Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) and Jeff (Joel McHale) bond over their common love of trash talk, while Jeff and campus hippie Vaughn (Eric Christian Olsen) compete for Britta's (Gillian Jacobs) affection. Meanwhile, Annie (Alison Brie) uses Abed (Danny Pudi) and Troy (Donald Glover) as guinea pigs for a psych class experiment, and Pierce (Chevy Chase) gets hip to modern technology with a hearing aid.
Señor Chang (Ken Jeong) invokes an inquisition and trial when one of the gang cheats on an exam. Annie (Alison Brie) enlists Pierce (Chevy Chase) to help her compose Greendale's new school song, and Troy (Donald Glover) educates Abed (Danny Pudi) on the art of joking.
Annie (Alison Brie) and Jeff (Joel McHale) play tug-of-war with Troy's (Donald Glover) football future to serve their own best interests. Meanwhile, Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) is shocked when she finds out that Britta (Gillian Jacobs) is unfamiliar with social female practices, i.e. going to the bathroom in pairs. Pierce (Chevy Chase) helps Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) design the new Greendale school mascot.
College comedy's wit trumps some stereotyping.
