    I am translating a university transcript from Colombia. It lists Course Title, I.H.S., and Grade. "I.H.S." looks like it might be the credit hours, but I am not sure. Does anyone know what "I.H.S." stands for?

    Just found the answer in another forum. In case anyone is interested, I.H.S. is Intensidad Horaria Semanal, or class hours per week.

    ARWB I was confronted with the same translation. How did you translate it?

    Hello,

    I translated I.H.S. as "class hours per week." It's not a literal word-for-word translation, but I believe it conveys the correct meaning in a way that native English speakers would say it. Let me know if you think otherwise.
