I recently had a 220 rep day and did not get the badge, so i wanted to confirm that that was in fact the reason for it.

And while I'm on the topic, up-votes and accepted answers are the only two things that would contribute to that badge correct?

On a side note, does this fall under bug or support or discussion? I would think support but I'm not sure.

is fine. :)

The association bonus does not affect the badge as you observed. This is by design.

Mortarboard is affected by

  • upvotes on your questions
  • upvotes on your answers
  • acceptances of your answers
  • bounties being awarded to your answers
