I kept studying to the point that I became dizzy.
Can that be switched around to become this and still be grammatically correct?
To the point that I became dizzy I kept studying.
Is there anything wrong with that sentence?

As several people have said, the original (with a comma) is perfectly grammatical. However, when you switch it around, it sounds better with "kept on".
To the point that I became dizzy, I kept on studying.
and I'd be more likely to reword the switched-around version with an "until"
Until I became dizzy, I kept on studying.
or, maybe keeping closer to the meaning of the original,
Until it made me dizzy, I kept on studying.
It is grammatical, though probably needs a comma, a RedGrittyBrick says.
It is an example of topicalisation, and puts a strong emphasis on whatever you've put to the front of the sentence.
