Qualtrics Overview

UW Tacoma Information Technology has acquired an institutional license to use Qualtrics’ survey platform. This license provides all UW Tacoma faculty, staff, and students with unlimited access to the survey platform, with no limits on responses or survey storage. 

Getting Started

Getting started with Qualtrics can range from easy to difficult depending on the complexity of your survey. Here are some helpful links to get you started:


Policy #188, set by the Washington State CIO, has established the expectation that all state agencies will provide accessible information technology to its stakeholders and users. The UW Tacoma Qualtrics instance has been configured to produce ADA compliant surveys and will warn users if there are any issues with accessibility. For more information on accessibility in Qualtrics, see the following: https://www.qualtrics.com/support/survey-platform/survey-module/survey-tools/check-survey-accessibility/


The UW Tacoma Qualtrics system meets UW standards for FERPA compliance, but cannot be considered HIPAA compliant. For more information, please see the Cloud Services Policy.
