Troubleshooting Your Online Invitation
Having trouble accepting your invitation in MyHonorSociety? Here are a few ways to troubleshoot:
Have you tried a different web browser? Sometime computers can be tricky. Try using a different web browser, such as Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, etc.
Are you accepting the invitation prior to the date specified in your invitation letter? Most invitations expire, and it is not possible to accept the invitation after the invitation period has closed.
Are you using the email address on file with your institution? Typically this is your school-specific .edu account, however, not all schools use institutional email accounts. If your school does not, it would be the main email account you have on record with the school.
Are you typing the invitation code correctly? It is case-sensitive.
Are you using the link sent to your email account? You cannot accept an invitation if it was forwarded to you from someone else, even if you are using your credentials.
- Have you tried using the main acceptance link? To accept your invitation, go to: https://ald.myhonorsociety.com/accept. Register by using the e-mail address on file with your university and entering the case-sensitive invitation code found in your invitation letter.
If you have tried these steps and still cannot accept your invitation, please contact the National Office.
