    I realize it's more common to say "My girlfriend dumped me.", but I'm curious if it is acceptable in North American English to say "I got dumped by my girlfriend".

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can use this kind of wording.

    Both forms are commonly used in BrE too. Whether they're acceptable is another matter ...
