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. 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
