Something like anatomy and physiology is fine as long as it's offered by the bio department.

Yes this is pretty much true.

So, I have finished a degree in biochemistry already, but I was able to do so without completing a full year of basic biology. I got the first semester done and I was not required the other half to graduate. I have taken other biology classes however: anatomy with lab, physiology, microbiology, genetics, cellular neurosciences, and a semester of independent studies in bio lab.

WIll these classes be good enough to replace the other semester of basic bio i wasn't able to take?

This is a really important question to me because I have been trying hard to get into the second semester of basic bio but complications with credit transfer have prevented me from doing so.
