The isotropic rigid and non-rigid rotators in the framework of Tsallis statistics are studied in the high and low temperature limits. The generalized partition functions, internal energies and heat capacities are calculated. Classical results of the Boltzmann-Gibbs statistics have been recovered as non-extensivity parameter approaches to 1. It has also been observed that non-extensivity parameter q behaves like a scale parameter in the low temperature regime of the rigid rotator model.
