I applied to become a partner in the past, what happens now?

If you applied in the past and were approved for partnership, you will continue to be a YouTube partner, enjoying all the benefits, product features, and support we provide our partners.

For creators who applied for partnership and either didn’t receive an answer or weren’t accepted to the program, your account may now be enabled for monetization, provided it is in good standing and your original video content complies with YouTube’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines.

To check your channel's eligibility, visit the Monetization tab in your account settings to complete opt-in.  Alternatively, visit the partner tab on the YouTube Creator Hub to enable monetization. If your account is not enabled for monetization, you may want to review the program criteria here.
