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.
