I have a Cisco ESW 520-24 that works fine and I can access the web console from any IP on my network but I want to be able to access the switch using Telnet for quicker management. I've done about everything I can think to do to be able to login using telnet but it always gives me this error:

Bad user name or password or user has no privilege to enter the menu

There's only 1 user account added to the switch and I've created and enabled a profile that's supposed to allow login for that user using all management profiles. Telnet never asks for a username, just a password.

Any help would be a appreciated.

Check under the heading "Configure Local User-Specific Passwords".

Here is link that describes the setup.

You must setup the priveledge levels for each user.  Setting to 1 might not be enough try raising the level until it will allow you to connect.

0 is the most restricted, while 15 is admin level.

I don't currently have any terminal access to this switch at all...is it possible to configure this from the web console?

You talking about the SDM?  Yes it will work.  If you direct access with console cable it will work exactly as described.
