Data Collection and Analysis Software


Northcentral University provides dissertation researchers access to Qualtrics free of charge. Access to Qualtrics is provided prior to NCU IRB approval to ensure students have plenty of time to learn how to use the tool and prepare the survey. Students may not, under any circumstances, distribute any recruitment or other research related materials to or have contact with potential participants, or begin collecting data prior to NCU IRB approval.

To ensure accurate record keeping and tracking, NCU has developed a process for requesting researcher Qualtrics accounts. Email the request for a Qualtrics account to the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness at The request should include your name and email address. A staff member will send the researcher login credentials for their Qualtrics account and links to Qualtrics training resources.


Below you will find links to the Qualtrics page if you need more assistance.
