Overview

Qualtrics is a survey tool that meets stringent information security requirements not found in most free online survey tools. It also has important quality control features, such as preventing multiple submissions from a single survey participant.

Getting Started

Qualtrics is now being centrally funded for Part 02 and Part 23 and no longer a paid subscription by college, division, department or group. Also it is funded through FY23 by the TAMU Budget office. Non-part 02 and Part 23 System Members who are participating in the System-wide Qualtrics contract are licensed to use the TAMU Instance but may or may not have their own instance.
