Will Dual-Enrollment Student Lose Out on Freshman Scholarships?

Question: I am finishing 10th grade now and am planning to take Dual Credit courses at a community college next year, but some friends have told me that if I take these courses, I could lose the chance to get some scholarships in my first college year. This is because of the fact that when I take Dual Credit courses, I am a freshman, a fact that could keep far away from getting scholarships that requires me to be a first year student in my college. Should I take dual credit courses or not? Thank you for reading, I expect your response soon.
