Optional cost for use of the University of Louisville's Intramural and Recreational Sports Student Recreational Center is $60.00 per semester, payable by the student by cash, check, or credit card to the IRSSRC directly, after arrival on-campus.

In addition to the items listed above, there are transportation expenses to and from the officer's home to the institute.  A one-week recess is scheduled to allow the students time to obtain and to develop information from their agencies which will assist them in completing required projects and achieving these objectives in the institute. It is suggested that the department pay all or part of the travel expenses for this mid-term recess. Meal allowances should be consistent with department practices for an average medium-sized city such as Louisville, KY.

These suggested minimum expense items should be considered advisory only and not binding on any agency.

Any agency making an advance payment should make the payment for tuition and housing fees only. SPI only accepts checks for tuition and other associated costs with the AOC.
