I am a k12 with 100,000 students 10,000 staff. I have clearpass licensed for 100,000 with 500 guest. I am looking at 25k or 50k onboading licenses looking to buy more later. My question is about the NAC sizing. Can anyone give me a forumla or some advice on the needed number for NAC licences? Some real world advice about what is needed.

OK, so posture checks are only done on Windows, OS X and some Linux platforms. So you'll want to guestimate how many of those devices you'll see vs mobile devices.
You have an option of getting enterprise licenses which cover guest, onboard, and onguard so that you don't need to worry about exact counts for each type. Just keep in mind that each feature uses 1 license.
So a device that is both Onboarded and checked for posture will consume 2 enterprise licenses.
