Qualtrics Survey Tool

Getting Started with Qualtrics

MSU has a licensing agreement with Qualtrics enabling all students, faculty, and staff to use this research survey tool at no cost. Read the MSU Qualtrics Getting Started for steps to creating a survey and other resources.

MSU Qualtrics uses your NetID and password. Click “Log into Qualtrics” to log into the survey application.

Qualtrics can be used for surveys as well as research data collection. The web-hosted service works across all major current browser versions and platforms.

NOTE: If you have an existing Qualtrics account, you’ll need to migrate accounts the first time you log into MSU Qualtrics after the single sign-on (SSO) implementation on January 16. Read about logging into MSU Qualtrics and migrating your account after the SSO implementation.

Research Data & Survey Owner Responsibilities

The MSU community should be familiar with the MSU Institutional Data Policy and MSU Web Accessibility Policy before creating any Qualtrics surveys. Exercise caution and discretion when working with Qualtrics.

Qualtrics Support offers a library of articles on creating surveys, analyzing data, and research resources.

Institutional Data

Qualtrics provides industry standard data security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and use of the data collected by users of its service. However, users have a responsibility to keep the data they collect secure and not share unnecessarily confidential survey data via reports, sharing of surveys or other methods of reviewing or exporting data.

Help & Support

If you have questions about your Qualtrics account at MSU, please contact the MSU IT Service Desk at (517) 432-6200 or email ithelp@msu.edu.

MSU Qualtrics Support can also set up a Group of individual accounts within Qualtrics, which allows you to collaborate with other Group members.
