Qualtrics Online Survey Platform

Qualtrics is a third party online survey program used at many Universities. CUMC has a license allowing faculty, staff and students to use Qualtrics Survey Platform for free.

To access Qualtrics, go to and login with your Columbia UNI and password.
TIP: This is the same login used for myColumbia, CourseWorks or SSOL.

If it is the first time logging in to page you will be prompted with instructions to create your Qualtrics account.
NOTE: Recent issues with Qualtrics automatically creating a new account seem to have been resolved.

Help and Support
Please contact Qualtrics directly for assistance, CUMC IT is only able to provide basic UNI account troubleshooting.
Note that CUMC's license does not cover all project types in Qualtrics.

Once you have logged in you will see a Research Core wizard or can click Create Project, both of which step you through survey and form creation.
