When I try logging in using EM the service line has:
Service     sdw1.ccc.edu
In the tnsnames file
sdw1.ccc.edu =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = psdwd.ccc.edu)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = sdw1.ccc.edu )
    )
  )
     
In the listener.ora file

(SID_DESC =
  (GLOBAL_DBNAME = sdw1.ccc.edu)
  (ORACLE_HOME = /u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0.1.0)
                                                     (SID_NAME = sdw1)
)

When I try going in through EM, I get the message SID given in connect descriptor could no be resolved.
What's the problem?

Try:

sdw1.ccc.edu =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = psdwd.ccc.edu)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SID = sdw1)
    )
  )

Could you use sdw1.ccc.edu  service name on server  psdwd.ccc.edu?

Check your SQLNET.ORA file, if the settings are like this
names.default_domain = world
name.default_zone = world

then you have to set in TNSNAMES.ORA file
sdw1.ccc.edu.world =
  (DESCRIPTION =
....

rest all remains same.

If you dont want to change the TNSNAMES, you can remove the two parameters above from SQLNET.ORA

No, it does not work even when I'm at the server using EM.  I can use sqlplus fiine.

Your entry says:
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = sdw1.ccc.edu )

Instead, My entry says:
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SID = sdw1)

I don't know if it is related, but i just tried the EM at the server.  There I get oracle.net.config serviceAliasException:10.   Seperate question.
