Run the following commands:

SET DEFAULT SYS$SYSTEM
RUN AUTHORIZE
ADD username -
 /PASSWORD=initial-password -
 /OWNER=user-real-name -
 /DEV=home-device -
 /DIR=[home-dir] -
 /UIC=[uic,uic] -
 /FLAG=NODISUSER
EXIT

You may add /PRIV=ALL to give the user system manager privileges,
accessible from DCL with SET PROC/PRIV=ALL.

You may add /PWDLIFETIME=NONE to disable password expiration. I always do.

Once the account is created, you will need to create their home directory:

CREATE/DIRECTORY home-device:[home-dir]
SET DIRECTORY/OWNER=username home-device:[home-dir]

That's pretty much it.
