It doesn't cost extra if you provide extra certificates.
If your spouse has a 3 year degree from India (BA, BCom or B. Sc), he/she needs to have 2 years of professional experience (that is what it was when we went through it) which will correspond to 1 year of college, making it a 4 year degree course. You have to let them know if this is the case and they will mention it in the evaluation report.
According to the international office at the university where I work you need THREE years of relevant experience to equal one year of education. This has been the standard they have used for more than ten years now.
