Western Michigan University is partnering with Forest Hills Public Schools to launch the "Collegiate Pathways" program.

The dual enrollment program, announced on Thursday, March 2, is set to launch in fall 2017 at Forest Hills Northern High School.

The program will allow students to earn a full Chinese language minor offered by WMU while still enrolled in high school.

While this is the first program being offered through WMU's new Collegiate Pathways initiative, Associate Provost Dawn Gaymer says the University is in discussions with other districts to provide dual enrollment programs for additional foreign languages and other academic programs.

All classes will be taught by WMU instructors beginning this fall.
