NSHE Transfer and Articulation Ombudsperson

My name is David Singleton and I am thrilled to be serving as the first Transfer and Articulation Ombudsperson in the history of the Nevada System of Higher Education. I have been in Nevada since 2006, and have worked for UNLV, Nevada State College, and the College of Southern Nevada as an academic advisor off and on over the course of the last dozen years.

My role, and my goal, is to do what I can to assist students who need help in navigating the transfer process as they move between institutions. I can help by answering questions or directing you to the offices on campus that can aid you in making your transfer as smooth as possible. In addition, if you are not satisfied with how your transfer credits are articulated at an NSHE institution and have exhausted all possible appeals on your home campus, I can help guide you through the NSHE Transfer Credit Request for Review process.

I also help to manage the Common Course Numbering process, which is just one of the many NSHE policies that are in place to make the transition from one college/university to the other easier.

I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication, and I received my Master of Science in Education from Illinois State University. Prior to moving to Nevada, I worked at Penn State University and at Eastern Michigan University, so I am a firm believer in the value of public education and the role it can play in improving one’s circumstances in life.

I will be visiting each of the campus as often as I can, so if you see me around, feel free to come up to me and say hello.  You can also reach me at or 702-522-7036.
