Can my degree plan be moved ahead in the queue because I need to register for OPT/CPT?

International Student Services has the prerogative to determine if your degree plan has been submitted to the Graduate & Professional School and may use this information to process your OPT/CPT request.

However, the best way to expedite the processing of your CPT/OPT-related degree plan changes is to put the corresponding coursework on your degree plan as early as possible, preferably when initially submitted.
