The Rashtriya Indian Military College (RIMC) is a public school for boys situated in Doon Valley, Dehradun in India.

The RIMC is a feeder institution for the National Defence Academy, Indian Naval Academy and subsequently the Indian Armed Forces.

Alumni of the RIMC are known as “Rimcollians”. Rimcollians have held high positions in the Armed Forces, many becoming the Chiefs of Staff in the Indian and Pakistani Armed Forces. The cadets enrolled at RIMC are known as “Rimcos” to distinguish them from the alumni.
