This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Mortarboard is only awarded once, that's [status-bydesign]. When you hit the rep cap 150 times, you'll get the gold Legendary. – Yannis Jun 4 '12 at 18:35

That's how it's supposed to be. Mortarboard is only awarded once, the first time you reach 200 reputation in one day.

Doing it multiple times eventually nets you two other badges:

  • Epic for reaching 200 rep 50 times;
  • Legendary for reaching 200 rep 150 times.
