The survey questionnaire form was created to improve quality, and reduce oversampling and redundancy. It is not intended to regulate who may or may not engage in survey activities but rather to offer guidance when needed and to build a central location for information about these activities.

Please submit this survey request form at least 3 weeks before the intended launch date.

Survey Tool Information+

Qualtrics will be the official survey instrument for Samford University. If you use another survey system, it is considered the same as an off-campus host and the researcher assumes full responsibility for security and privacy of the data. Technology Services will provide technical assistance and training for Qualtrics. 


Based on the type(s) of survey, the review timeline may vary. Independently, SRC and IRB approval may take up to 30 days. If the survey is reviewed by both the SRC and IRB, then additional review time may be needed. If changes are required, each submission resets the review timeline.
