  • Step 1: Complete "Request for Outside Activity Wizard" if you are unsure if your activity requires advance approval
  • Step 2: Complete the "Approval for Outside Activity" and submit it to DIS to obtain permission to engage in your requested activity. The form must be submitted before beginning the activity. Provide the details of your planned activity (such as taking or teaching a class) to your IC.
