The University of Colorado Board of Regents has voted unanimously to approve spending $814,000 for investigations into CU's football recruiting scandal.
But the regents also voted to bill the athletic department for the expense.
The department will be allowed to borrow the money from a university emergency fund and pay it back within five years.
Chancellor Richard Byyny (BIN'-ee) assured regents this morning in Boulder that student fees will not be used to cover the costs.
The expenses include nearly 171-thousand dollars for an internal investigation and more than 247-thousand dollars for communications
CU President Elizabeth Hoffman says the expenditures were justified because the reputation of the university had to be maintained.
