Pre-existing Qualtrics Account

If you had a Qualtrics account via a different university or you set up a free Qualtrics account and would like your accounts merged, you will need to contact Qualtrics Support and work directly with them to merge accounts.

To contact Qualtrics Support:

  1. Go to the Qualtrics Support Page
  2. Choose 'Sign in with SSO'
  3. Enter 'montana' (lowercase letters) as the Organization ID
  4. Sign in with your NetID and password

Additionally, if you created a free Qualtrics account using your MSU email, we recommended that you contact Qualtrics Support, and ask them to delete your free trial account. It's an easy process and as soon as they have deleted your trial account, you can login to your MSU Qualtrics account.
