We currently have a dhcp scope of 172.15.1.50 - 172.15.3.255 with a 255.255.0.0 subnet.  We need to expand this to allow for more usable addresses without affecting the current users.  Can I extend the scope to 172.15.5.255 without affecting these users?

Yes, since your subnet mask allows for 172.15.0.1 through 172.15.255.254.

Yes.  Just make sure that you do not have any servers, IIS sites, or other services which are utilizing addresses within the expanded range, so as to avoid the possibility of an IP conflict when the expanded scope begins issuing the new addresses.
