Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, all tuition received by the board of trustees of the University of Massachusetts paid by students who reside in the state shall be retained by the board of trustees in a revolving trust fund or funds and shall be expended as the administration of the campus the student attends directs in accordance with regulations established by the board. All tuition received by the boards of trustees of the state universities and community colleges paid by students who reside in the state shall be retained by the respective board of trustees in a revolving trust fund or funds and shall be expended as the administration of the institution directs. Any balance in the trust funds at the close of the fiscal years shall be available for expenditures in subsequent fiscal years and shall not revert to the General Fund.
