The Qualtrics tool is available to ODU faculty and staff to support research, program evaluation, and assessment. The software is also available to student researchers and employees under the supervision of a faculty or staff member.

Please note: Undergraduate and graduate student researchers and employees must have their faculty or staff supervisor request a Qualtrics account on their behalf.

Account Types:

  • Limited Access: 5 active surveys and up to 1,000 responses per account.
  • Expanded Access: unlimited survey and responses
