The first studs on either side, the jack studs, go only as high as the rough opening of the doorway. On top of those go a double header. Since it is none load bearing a 2x6 header is sufficient. Use two 2x6's with a piece of 1/2 plywood sandwiched between.

Door openings commonly have two king studs and two jack studs. A king stud is one that runs continuously from the top plate to the bottom plate.
This method is essentially the same as framing a door opening and filling in the lower area with jack studs and a sill that runs between two trimmer studs. Of course, for a door opening the bottom plate is cut out after the wall sections are tilted into place.
Step 9. Nail the king studs, jack studs, a header and a cripple stud in place to complete the rough door framing.
