Is it okay to send more letters of recommendation?

I asked five former professors and volunteer supervisors to recommend me to an MSW program at Clark Atlanta. Surprisingly they all said yes. The thing is the requirement is only three letters. Would it hurt my application if I sent in more than that?

Deadline is approaching soon and I don't know what to do with all of these letters.

I also tried calling the school several times today and no one answered or returned my call =\

    If they are asking for 3, I would not send more than 5. I don't know how it works with Masters programs. If you email the school this question, you may get a better idea.
