adding another drain to a septic system

Need some help, I am adding a toilet in a small outside building and I have a septic system. The drain coming from the house to the system is to far away from where I am putting the new toilet I was wondering is there anything I can do cost effective of course that lets me still run this to the septic system. I know the system can handle it as this new toilet will only be used a few times a week.

Right now it would not have enough drop. it's about 65'.

Is it possible to install a pump system?

How far away is the septic tank from the outbuilding?
If you can get 1/4" of slope per linear foot of 3" line to the tank from the outbuilding, there usually is more than one place that a line can be connected to a tank.
Some concrete tanks have knockout holes around the upper part near the lid, so that lines can be run from other directions.
If it's too far, a pump (such as those used in basement bathrooms) might be the only answer, as Brewbeer suggested.
