Question Changing Oil Filter without Changing oil?

I just purchased a used '03 S from a pvt seller with 15.5k miles on the odo. During the PPI, the dealer found the RMS to be leaking a little so the seller had it replaced prior to the sale. The 15k maintenance wasn't performed prior to the sale. The dealer only changed the oil during the RMS replacement but not the oil filter. They said I can just have the filter changed.

I'm a DIY kinda guy so am wondering if I could change the filter without changing the oil. On my STi, for instance, this wouldn't be possible without having most of the oil drain out as the filter is located at the lowest point of the oil pan.
