American Society of Appraisers


In partnership with the American Society of Appraisers, The University of Chicago Graham School offers a four-course series designed to prepare you for professional appraisal work and the USPAP exam. These classes focus on valuation methods that are common to all appraisers. 

About the Program
As the only ASA approved location in the Midwest, The University of Chicago Graham School is able to provide quality courses to a wide variety of students. Through this series, you will gain the specialized knowledge and practical hands-on experience to competently produce appraisals for a variety of specific objectives such as insurance coverage, estate tax, damage claims, charitable contributions, sale, dissolution of marriage, and equitable distribution and liquidation.

Program Structure
Personal Property Valuation 201 – 204 must be taken in sequence. Each of the four courses is offered over a four-day period, beginning on Wednesday and ending on Saturday afternoon. This allows our course sessions to be travel-friendly to our out-of-state students.

Program Requirements
An exam is administered at the end of each course.  You must receive a passing grade in each course in order to enroll in the next course in the sequence.

The first course in the new series begins Wednesday, January 29.  Register by Tuesday, January 28 by visiting
