Echo360 Getting Started

New to Echo360? 

If you are new to Echo360 sign up for a introductory workshop register at After the training, you will receive an email invitation (24 hours minimum), "You've been invited to create an Echo360 account" click "COMPLETE REGISTRATION".

You are redirected to create a password for Echo360.

The password you create can be the same as or different from your SVSU password, as long as it meets the Echo360 password specifications (listed below).
NOTE: Your Echo360 password is not synced with your SVSU login credentials.

Echo360 requires passwords of a certain strength in order to secure their system. Here are some tips for generating a usable password:

  • DO use multiple words, foreign words, or an uncommon phrase - include letters/numbers/characters to improve strength
  • Avoid single dictionary words (ch@racter substitutions don't h3lp either - too easy to guess)
  • Avoid alphanumeric or keyboard sequences such as abcd, 1234, qwerty, 09876
  • Avoid your name or any location or dates associated with you (including recent/future years)
