Hello! This is my first post. I currently go to a community college and I'm planning on getting my AS degree here. If I take some of the pre reqs of the pharmacy school at the CC, but they aren't equivalent, will the Pharm school tell me to retake it? Even if it's in my AS degree? Someone told me that if the credit is in your degree they have to accept it. Even if it's not equivalent to their course. I want to know if this is true. I hope all this makes sense. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks ! :)

The course has to meet the pharmacy school's requirements, regardless of its place in your degree plan. For example, if the pharmacy school requires biology for science majors (versus biology for allied health), then an allied health course will most likely not be accepted by the pharmacy school.
