Third-party form requirements

Online Forms: Choose a tool based on your needs.

  • Forms for event registration
    Eventbrite Forms
    Eventbrite can be used for registration for paid and free events. The setup allows for custom fields and registration settings, including limiting the number of tickets for an event and multiple ticket types (free, early bird, student tickets, etc.). Also allows for mobile ticketing. The tool is free to use, however there are fees for paid events.
  • Forms that allow document uploads
    Qualtrics Survey Forms
    Qualtrics is ideal for surveys and feedback forms, and also works for more basic inquiry forms. Access Qualtrics with your Marquette account to author surveys. Forms can be public or private, and private forms can be password protected or accessible by invite only. As of Sept. 17, 2018, Qualtrics started offering file uploads.
  • Basic inquiry, contact forms, etc. (For users whose sites are in Omni CMS)
    Omni CMS Forms
    Omni CMS Forms can be used to create simple forms such as contact forms and inquiries. Your website must be part of Omni CMS in order to use this tool.
  • Microsoft forms may be used if you want to limit access to specific Marquette users and require their Marquette login information to view the form. For more information, contact the IT Services Help.

If you have questions about what form tool to use, please contact Jan Harwig in the Office of Marketing and Communication at 288-5867 or

Forms must meet the university’s standards in these areas:

Health information and student privacy protection

Make sure no one is entering health information or protected student information into third-party forms. View Marquette’s guidelines on HIPAA and FERPA.

Spam protection

As we have been the target of spam attacks, the form must use a reCAPTCHA or similar spam protection that can differentiate people from robots.


Over half of all web traffic takes place on a mobile device. To account for this, the form must be accessible with a mobile device. Test on your smart phone or use an emulator on your desktop computer.


We are required to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 AA) to make sure our sites are usable by visitors with impairments. You can use their online tool to check your form for issues.


If the form is for an official Marquette event or will be placed on a website, OMC needs to review it before it goes live. Please send to
