I had misdemeanor A conversion charge in 2013 and it was decided by CRIMINAL CONVERSION/MA
I had to take class and volunteer the time .
I assume the underlying criminal case was fully dismissed upon your completion of what sounds like some sort of pre-trial diversion program (the class and community service that you mentioned). Assuming this is the case and assuming this is the only potential issue that you would have when applying for citizenship, then yes you can apply. I am also assuming here that you are a permanent resident /Green Card holder and that you have been in the US for the required time period while holding that status. I don't have any information on this, so assuming everything else is OK, then yes. You will need collect certified copies of the dismissal / final disposition in the criminal case.
Is your probationary period over? You cannot apply for citizenship while still under probation.

Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
