If you have a disability, avoid SHSU. They do not support students with learning/processing disabilities - if they can't "see" it, they will not work with you. They are also not honest about what requirements are needed to secure disability services. It is arbitrary. Do not even consider SHSU if you are looking for support services beyond "note taking" or "extended time".
