Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, except as provided pursuant to Section 89707.5 with respect to nonresident students who are citizens and residents of a foreign country and who are not citizens of the United States, student body organization membership fees authorized under the provisions of Section 89300 shall be collected by the officials of the campus of the California State University, together with all tuition and material and service fees, at the time of registration, except where a student loan or grant from a recognized training program or student aid program has been delayed and there is reasonable proof that the funds will be forthcoming. Exception may also be made where changes are made during the change of program period which result in a higher fee category than paid at the time of registration. All unexpended funds and money collected on behalf of, or by, student body organizations, except funds and money collected from commercial services as provided in Section 89905, shall, with the approval of an appropriate officer of the student body organization, be deposited in trust by the chief fiscal officer of the campus.

(a) Deposits in trust accounts of the centralized State Treasury system pursuant to Sections 16305 to 16305.7, inclusive, of the Government Code or in the California State University Trust Fund or in a bank or banks whose accounts are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
(b) Investment certificates or withdrawable shares in state-chartered savings and loan associations and savings accounts of federal savings and loan associations, if the associations are doing business in this state and have their accounts insured by the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation and if any money so invested or deposited is invested or deposited in certificates, shares, or accounts fully covered by the insurance.
(c) Purchase of any of the securities authorized for investment by Section 16430 of the Government Code or investment by the Treasurer in those securities.
(d) Participation in funds which are exempt from federal income tax pursuant to Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and which are open exclusively to nonprofit colleges, universities, and independent schools.
(e) Investment certificates or withdrawable shares in federal or state credit unions, if the credit unions are doing business in this state and have their accounts insured by the National Credit Union Administration and if any money so invested or deposited is invested or deposited in certificates, shares, or accounts fully covered by such insurance.
All moneys received by a state university from any agency of the state or federal government for the payment of student body organizations membership fees of students attending the state university shall be deposited or invested as provided above.
