When you reach +200 in one day you will get Mortarboard

50 days 200 + gives you Epic.

Note: Epic and Legendary include days where you get exactly 200 rep –  Ben Brocka Jun 28 '12 at 14:13

A maximum of +200 reputation may be gained per day. Accepted answers are immune to this cap (source) as are bounties (source). (A new day starts 0:00 UTC == 7pm EST == 4pm PST == 1am CET == 5:30 am IST.)

This is from the Reputation FAQ.

You can find out whether you've hit the reputation cap. Look here for instructions:

Make sure you are logged in, and visit


So at the end of the reputation report you find a section like this:

So for getting the badges you need to accumulate the right amount of days you hit 200+ reputation.
