Do non-transferred dual enrollment credits still count for pre-med requirements?

    For my last two years of high school, I was enrolled as a full-time student at a 4-year state university through a dual-enrollment program. I'm now an incoming freshman at a private university that doesn't accept credit for college classes taken during high school, so none of that credit will transfer, and I'll spend all four years at my new school. I know that the AMCAS will take the dual-enrollment classes into account for my GPA, but will med schools allow me to skip taking gen chem, English, and a semester of math at my new school since I already took them at a different university? This would allow me to get orgo out of the way freshman year and replace the math/English with classes that I'm more interested in. I did search the forums for this, but all of the other threads referred to dual-enrollment credits that actually were transferred. I'm not sure if a different rule applies to my situation since none of the college credit I earned during high school will go towards my degree. Also, I did get As in the classes that I'm hoping to skip. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Yes, your dual-enrollment college-level courses taken and passed in high school are valid for fulfilling medical school prerequisites unless a specific medical school specifies otherwise (which is unlikely.)
