Qualtrics Surveys


Individuals wishing to use online survey tools such as Qualtrics, must complete the survey request form

Some surveys will require approval of the research protocol by the Institutional Review Board for the protection of human subjects (IRB). The survey request form will be used to identify which surveys require approval. Approved use of the online survey tools is based upon the survey's contribution to the university strategic plan and IRB approval, if required.
