Revenue collected from miscellaneous course fees is to be deposited either in the General Fund or in a local trust account, depending on the nature of the fee. In accordance with Education Code Section 89721(g), revenue collected may be deposited in a local trust account where the fee is required of those persons who, at their option, use the services or facilities, or are provided the materials, for which the fee is collected. In other words, if the student has the option to procure the service or materials for which the fee is charged on the open market or some other way separate from the university and still fulfill the requirements of the university, the revenue may be deposited in trust. Revenue so deposited shall be used solely to meet the costs of providing these services, materials, and facilities. Otherwise, in accordance with Section 89724(a) of the Education Code, revenue collected from miscellaneous course fees shall be deposited in the State Treasury and credited to the General Fund for the support of the university in addition to such other amounts as may be appropriated therefor by the Legislature.
