The working titles of this film were Campus Rhythm and All-American Girl. The film opens with the following written statement: "Any similarity to actual college life depicted in this picture is purely coincidental." According to a Hollywood Reporter news item, Eugene Conrad developed the original idea for the story, but his contribution to the final film has not been confirmed. The film received Academy Award nominations for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture (Edward Ward); and Best Song for "Out of the Silence," music and lyrics by Lloyd B. Norlin. All-American Co-Ed was one of Hal Roach's "streamlined features," a series of short comedies intended to fill the second half of a double bill. The first streamlined feature was the 1941 film Tanks a Million (see below).
