The fact that he does not yet have a) student pass, b) acceptance by a local university, c) LTLVP of at least 6 months, d) IPA for an EP or e) a DP means he has nothing to prove residency so will be required to show an onward journey or return ticket. Normally a return ticket will be required.

He cannot get a 90 day visa until his arrival in Singapore where immigration will give him one "on request" if they don't automatically issue one as he's a US citizen and Singapore falls under the Visa Waiver Program.
I've never been asked at SG immigration for proof of onward ticket, ever. Plus I expect that 99.9% of US check-in staff wouldn't know what IPA, LTVP, Residency, Dp was or looked like.

If it is such a big thing in the US can't you just show them a $5 bus ticket to JB? Hey look, onward ticket!

I just returned from the US and had to show my proof of residency in Singapore. I'd say they are cracking down a bit. TSA are having their way come hell or high water.
