I got a couple misdemeanors in college, but I`ve done a state criminal background check and I`m clean. Do you think these will turn up on my FBI background check for the Peace Corps? : California diversion drug conviction 1975

In 1975 I was given one day diversion for a very small amount of pot found in luggage I owned. The charge was changed to dismissed and it was supposed to be expunged and sealed. Can I legally claim on application forms that I was never arrested? Also will this arrest show up in an fbi background check? This was well before the computer age.I would appreciate anyone with some insight into this issue to answer.
