It’s not advertised on the Adobe website, but there exists a newer perpetual licence of Acrobat Pro 2020 for $170.50 for students. To get this, you need to go onto chat and ask for it specifically from sales.
Some new features include DirectInk support for computers that have pen capability, and OCR on documents that already have live text.
Note this is not a subscription.
Retailers are still selling Acrobat Pro 2017 for students at about the same price, so this is a better deal as you get the latest version without subscription fees.
