We study the Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) phenomenon in an interacting trapped Bose gas using the semiclassical two-fluid model and nonextensive statistical mechanics. The effects of nonextensivity characterized by a parameter are explored by calculating the temperature dependent thermodynamic properties, fraction of condensed particles, and density distributions of condensed and thermal components of the system. It is found that nonextensivity in the underlying statistical mechanics may have large effects on the BEC transition temperature.
