Qualtrics online survey software


Wellesley College has a site license for Qualtrics, a cloud-based survey suite.

All current Wellesley College faculty, students, and staff can create their own accounts at Wellesley's Qualtrics server. To create your Qualtrics, you need only enter your Wellesley College email address. You do not need to enter any access code. Your Qualtrics user name should be your 8 character username followed by @wellesley.edu, e.g., kleebate@wellesley.edu

Once you've replied to the verification email on your new account, you can use Qualtrics at wellesley.qualtrics.com

If you have a problem logging in, it's usually caused by accidentally siging up for a free demo account at qualtrics.com
