You can accomplish this using the Active Directory Migration Tool, a free download from Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=6F86937B-533A-466D-A8E8-AFF85AD3D212&displaylang=en

Depending on the # of users you have to move and the budget allocated to the project, you can also purchase a third-party migration tool from Quest or a similar vendor that has more bells and whistles than ADMT.
