Year off

"year off" é muito comum e muito usada na Inglaterra. Significa que o estudante vai estudar ou trabalhar por 1 ano (ou mais) e depois volta à universidade. Deve ser o mesmo nos EUA.
A outra opção é "descrever" a situação:
"with assured return to the university"; "I have an assured place in my previous university";
"WORK/STUDY PLACEMENT" também é usado, mas isso significa que foi a sua própria universidade que solicitou o seu afastamento para estudos ou prática, o que não parece ser o seu caso - que foi vontade sua. Acho que "year off" é o mais curto, que explica bem.

year out/sandwich year

Often in UK university students "take a year out" between degrees or between uni and starting a job.
This could also mean a "sandwich" year during which the student(s) go abroad or do something related to their studies for work experience, and then return to uni to continue their degree. Depending on the rest of the text, you may make your choice. I hope this helps.
