Getting Started

Before you activate and distribute your first survey or form in Qualtrics

If you are publishing a survey which will be sent to 10% or more students, faculty, staff or alumni: please contact Institutional Research to discuss survey scheduling. Visit the Institutional Research page for more information. 

If your survey involves research on human subjects: Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval may be necessary prior to survey distribution. Contact the Institutional Review Board to determine if the IRB approval is required to publish your survey, or whether you qualify for an IRB exemption. Typically surveys that are used internally for program/organizational improvement and whose results will not be published are qualified for IRB exemption; however, only IRB can make that determination.

If you are gathering sensitive or confidential information in your form or survey: please review the CSU policy on Information Asset Management for more details about appropriate data gathering & storage practices using Qualtrics. Users of Qualtrics must comply with Information Technology Services (ITS) business practices, CSU policy, and state and federal laws regarding proper gathering, storage, usage and disposal of confidential and sensitive data.
