Communication skill serves as a channel for expressing desires, ideas, and concepts and is very important to the process of learning and teaching. This descriptive study sought to determine the relationship between Personality Traits and Communication Apprehension of Mountain View College education students during the second semester of 2014-2015. Two hundred fifteen respondents answered the Communication Apprehension and Big Five Inventory Questionnaires. The finding revealed that personality trait has no significant relationship to their communication apprehension.

It was recommended that further study be made to find other factors relating to the communication apprehension of Mountain View College education students.
