You can use commandline script on server to trigger change to user account password and force it to EXPIRE:
WMIC.EXE /Node:remotecomputer Path Win32_UserAccount Where Name="user" Set PasswordExpires="TRUE"

Open in new window

If you are a bit into scripting, you can find A LOT of really usefull commandline short scripts for active directory here: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/ntadmincommands.php#Cmd09
Go to active directory console.

open the particular user account properties

In the account tab, check the box that is "user must change password at next logon"

It will prompt user to change for user id on logon
