Qualtrics Online Surveys

Qualtrics is our user-friendly, free web-based survey software available to University of Kansas faculty, staff and students. It is a sophisticated yet flexible survey service with the functionality to create professional-quality surveys and reports.

UPDATE: Account Migration Scheduled Feb. 18-22

The School of Business and School of Education licenses are scheduled to be migrated into the Enterprse license the week of Feb. 18, 2019. Account holders will be moved in small batches and the downtime will only be a few minutes while the user account is being moved. For this very small window, a user would not be able to access surveys they have created. Data collection will not be affected – all active surveys will remain active and continue to collect responses.

After the migration is complete, these users will share the same permanent login portal as the rest of campus: http://survey.ku.edu. Use your KU Online ID and password to authenticate. As a final step in the migration, any surveys that were shared with your pre-migration account (for Business and Education users) must be re-shared with your new account by the survey owners.

How do I log in?

The following instructions are accurate until the planned migration the week of Feb. 18, 2019 is complete.
