In the study groups third year at Greendale, Neil is shown working at the campus radio station as a DJ under the name "Real Neil" with "Pipes of steel". He participates in the finale battle between Abed's Fluffy Town and Troy's Blanketsburg. He is later shown working in the school administration office and assists Troy and Abed in their investigation of who sabotaged the study group's biology yam project. He gives them information on who borrowed the Biology lab key which ultimately leads them to naming a suspect for the crime, Todd. However, at the trial that was held in Biology class, Jeff has a last minute epiphany and realizes that Todd didn't commit the crime. After closely examining the other students' yams, he reveals that the yam belonging to Vicki was the only one that had not been sabotaged. Neil then comes clean and admits he was the one who did it. He claims he did it for love as he wanted Vicki to pass, so she could spend the summer with him instead of retaking Biology in summer school. He ends up losing his position at the administration office and retaking Biology during the summer.
